I didn't know about this place at all until I stumbled upon it. It is an old library building on Main Street that has since been turned into the Clark County Historical Museum. It is interesting but very small. Exhibits only on on floor. They...More

What an interesting walk! Learn some history and legends of local businesses that are said to be haunted. Hidden House, Kiggens the theater and the I-5 bridge are just a few. I think it is only offered in October, but worth the $10.

The museum changes its exhibit frequently, but always focuses on the region and its place in the “bigger picture.” Recent exhibit included one on women’s undergarments; another is of Native American basketry. It did one on the history of the Interstate 5 bridge that connects...More
